Tri-Valley REACH, Inc., which stands for Resources Education Activities Community and Housing, is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for persons with developmental disabilities. Its mission is to provide resources, education, activities, community participation, and housing opportunities that will enable adults with developmental disabilities in the Tri-Valley to live full and independent lives.

For more than 28 years, REACH has provided living environments that are safe, high quality, and affordable. REACH tenants are able to live, work, and socialize in the community in which they grew up. Many of them work at local businesses and are proud to be contributing members of the community.
“When given the opportunity, an individual with a developmental disability is a remarkable human being and capable of accomplishing many great things,” says Kay King, Chair of REACH’s Board of Directors. “For an adult with a developmental disability, living independently is a key step in developing independence and important life skills.”
The relationship REACH has with those who live in its properties goes beyond the typical landlord-tenant relationship. REACH works with individuals and their support staff or service providers to ensure their living environment supports any special needs they may have. Any modifications or adaptations to the home that might be needed are done by REACH at no cost to the tenant.
